PI LIVE, the global performance marketing show, will return in 2018 to London from October 15-16.

A limited amount of early bird tickets will be available from 14:00 GMT Tuesday, December 12, offering entry at the lowest rate ahead of the show.

Spanning two full days, PI LIVE is the event of the year for the performance marketing industry, providing a platform for actionable learning, new connections and industry progression.

PI LIVE’s 2018 launch follows an explosive debut this year which received over 2,200 performance marketers and a glowing reception from attendees.

“PI LIVE is everything you want to see; everyone you want to meet; everyone in one place – you can pretty much see the whole industry in two days” – Richard Dennys, CEO, Webgains (2017 Headline Sponsor).

In response to attendee feedback, PerformanceIN has improved and enhanced the experience for 2018, with the show promising to be even bigger and better thanks to an extension to the exhibition floor and multiple new networking opportunities.  

New and improved

A result of demand last year, PI LIVE will inhabit an extra level of the Old Billingsgate venue, providing additional space for allocated meeting zones and exhibitors, which brings estimated attendance up to 3,000.

This paves the way for the Networking Village, a designated area catering for structured and vertical-specific networking, ensuring attendees meet the right people with the interests most aligned with their business.

For exhibitors who know nothing pulls the crowds like the aroma of fresh churros and espresso, a batch of new food & beverage opportunities will keep appetites slaked and stands busy on the exhibition floor.

“PI LIVE is a wonderful melting pot of ideas, providing a chance to make ourselves a better industry as a whole” – Nick Fletcher, VP customer success, Rakuten Marketing UK (2017 Headline Sponsor).

Welcome returns

Tackling the channel’s intersect with performance marketing in talks geared at maximising ROI in a rapidly developing space, the co-located Influencer Marketing Show is back by popular demand. Extended to the full duration of PI LIVE, the show will feature its own agenda tackling latest progress into influencer campaign measurement and exhibition space, home to platforms and networks driving the channel’s growth and innovation.

Meanwhile, PI LIVE’s global flavour will be catered for by the return of its street food market featuring an array of international cuisine available al fresco on the banks of the Thames.

Global achievements

Recognising industry achievements from across the globe, the International Performance Marketing Awards will return again in 2018, playing a more frontal role in the events of the show.

The ceremony will take place on the evening of day one (October 15), with the after-ceremony serving as a joint networking party with PI LIVE itself.

“There’s one must-attend event to meet everyone in the industry, and that’s PI LIVE” – Philip Keckeis, director international operations, TradeTracker.com (2017 Headline Sponsor).
